Why do folks say that when it comes to police violence against black people? Is it true that black people are silent on so-called black on black violence?

Your thoughts...

Because:

1. Black people don't realize we are a colonized people.

2. Internecine (=between brothers) violence is not recognized as having its roots in white supremacist policies over which black Americans have no control OR influence.

3. It's easier, SAFER, and one is more likely to be LISTENED TO and agreed with when you blame black people for the violence that besets our communities, nationwide, than should one call out the white Powers That Be for their malignant control of those communities.

4. We have swallowed the propaganda that we, as a race, are "special," and that white communities are free of white-on-white crime and violence.

5. Black people have accepted the idea that police are NOT in our communities to protect and serve us, only to push us around and hopefully, to stop some criminal from burglarizing our homes. Thus, we expect some "collateral" damage, i.e., some innocent black being roughed up and, unfortunately, killed. And while the cops won't listen to us, other black people will join us in blaming police victims for being foolish enough to be NOT Mother Teresa while being black and in the wrong place at the wrong time.

No, we're silent on white-on-white violence.

Not so much on black on black violence. In fact, we're quite vocal.... and public, as witness march after march through city after city by neighborhood blacks against black on black violence.
